You go girl!
I am amazed at how gifted and talented so many of my friends are! I have to brag on my friend, Brandi, now ;-) Her website reads, "
Brandi Stafford Simons is an award-winning freelance photographer based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Brandi has been photographing daily news, sports, and portrait assignments since 1993, working as a photojournalist on a newspaper staff as well as freelance. In 2005 she and her family returned to Tulsa so her husband Mike could take a staff photographer’s position at The Tulsa World, and Brandi could freelance. Oklahoma has always been “home” to Mike and Brandi, and they are very excited to be back.
Brandi brings her years of photojournalism experience to her documentary portraiture, working unobtrusively. Her Don’t Say Cheese attitude paired with photographing people in their own comfortable surroundings makes for some truly amazing storytelling images."

A few days ago, Brandi covered the Picher tornado. Her photos even made USA Today's "The Day in Pictures" Go to "May 14th" & it's picture #3.
You can see more photos of the Picher devastation if you go here - you'll also see more amazing pictures she's taken from all over the U.S.
Yea, Brandi ;-) You go girl!
